Good mornin' y'all.

Ah, I am well slept in (didn't get up until 1040), nicely coffeed, and slightly wet.  I took some recycling out to the porch, and there is rain.  Thursday, it was pouring quite heavily (2 inches in 24hrs).  Yesterday, blue skies.  Today, raining.  Gotta love weather.

I read a book yesterday, and I think y'all would will have a similar reaction as I did.
This book said that the musket was the primary firearm of the civil war.  It says that these muskets are highly inaccurate, because they had no rifling, and the ball would bounce around inside the barrel "like a pinball."  And it claimed that the war would have ended sooner if the soldiers had rifles - which weren't invested until after Gettysburg.  Huh   Don't know where they got their information, but I had to sort of laugh.

High Quality Ethan Allen Perpperbox by Hoppes

This is a 6 shot, .36 cal pepperbox pistol sold through Hoppe’s.  These were made 20-25 years ago I believe.  It is a high quality pistol that works smoothly, although I have never fired it.  It looks to be unfired, but I cannot say that for sure.  When the hammer is cocked the barrels rotate smoothly and lock into place.  Do not confuse this with the Classic Arms pepperbox kit currently sold through dealers.  Those are junk compared to this. US Sales only.

I see some reloading and app questions on the Cas City forum. Since I regrettably have not participated lately, I set up my little pocket camera to record how I load for my Spencer. The process has evolved over the years as components became available or unobtainable. I still play around with bullet lube and hardness, but this is the load I currently use with good results. If you reload for an original 1865 you my find this of some interest.  JW

I was wondering if anyone has an Uberti colt clone that has both a .44 special cylinder as well as a .44-40 cylinder? If so, how does it shoot? From what I understand, the barrels have the same measurements.

Thanks,

Patrick

I got a 1873 Cattleman 44/40 4 3/4 inch (1515) with a .427 barrel that I just love. Always wanted a convertable, so I called up Cimarron Arms and got the last 44 special cylinder they had a few months ago. I thought that it would drop right in, but not so. Found out the first thing to fit a cylinder was the head space, of which is slightly different than the 44/40 cylinder that was fitted in the gun. That is feeler gauge thickness between back of cylinder to recoil shield. I am not anywhere near being a gunsmith, but I got it to fit and it functions very well with either cylinder.  I shoot old Lyman #42798 .427 without the O, and Lee 429-200 .429 useing COWWs. Also shoot .429 Elmer Kieths 268 grain in the .427 barrel......now adjusting height or trajectory with different weights and size is another subject.....

Ask me if I love this Uberti.......yeeeehhaaaa

That fried fish looks good. I have finished off the Cawffee and switching to unsweetened iced tea. I had some toast earlier with the Cawffee. No clue for lunch or supper.

55 here this morning and not supposed to get too much warmer.  They are saying 40% chance of rain, but don’t see anything but severe blue in the sky.  The fake rain stays on for now.

The deep fryer was busy last night!  Fish fries and puppies.

Great video Mike.  Thanks!  Unfortunately for me the only 'rolling block' I ever shot was the Mattel 'Shootin' Shell Rolling Block with 'Greenie Stickem' Caps.  Did I just age myself?  Undecided  I have seen the Remington and handled them but never fired one.  Thanks again.
